Backside of Aspen
When the temperature is 8°F you gotta do somethin’ to try and heat things up 😜
We spent this day with friends snowmobiling which was SO fun, a little scary and out of our league at times, but so worth it!
We stopped by this beautiful secluded cabin on top of the mountain for some Coors and peppermint schnapps and of course Carlie and I had to do our traditional salute to Mother Nature ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
For the first time in almost 9 years, I finally asked @ryanthorleyrides if I could borrow his sled and his truck, to drive both vehicles for the first time, a touchy beast of an old Dodge and ride a 2-stroke mountain sled with a completely different way to ride it than what I’m used to, and the thing still isn’t even past its break-in period because it’s brand spankin new. So while @ryanthorleyrides was at work, I drove off with 80% of his life to go for a cruise in the mountains with @turbo_jenn, and hot damn that was fun! #braap
Somehow this picture managed to get deleted so I’m reposting (and with a better edit). Please show them some love again 😭🤗
___________________________________________________ In light of my morning reading and taking every chance to spread love and insight through words, here’s a quote from the book in my lap “All of this is still unconscious to most people. All we know is that we feel weak and when we control others we feel better. It is their energy we have stolen. Most people go through their lives in a constant hunt for someone else’s energy....” ________________________________________________ Have you ever felt physically drained after speaking with someone who was stressed, or having an argument with someone, or maybe you felt on top of the world after having a magnificent conversation with someone where energy was happily and freely exchanged? Without diving too far into it right now, start thinking about your energy and what you are giving/ receiving with your personal interactions with others. In what areas of your life are you being charged versus emptied? More on this later, just some morning thoughts to get ya goin.
So I took some photos of my husband in his uniform for his Instagram. 😅 one of my favorites.

The life you are waiting for is not waiting on the other side of your excuses! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The oh I’ll do this and that once I lose the weight, have more money, have more time, find that special person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dream big and get out there and crush those goals! Decide what YOU want and don’t limit yourself to other people’s opinions.

I’d be okay with a lot more sunsets like this.

Who has Zion National Park on their bucket list? Beautiful shot of Angels Landing by @mblockk 🤙🏻 @jacksonpineco
Many local tribes have claimed a connection to the Garden of the Gods at some point in time, including the Apache, Kiowa, Pawnee, Arapaho, Cheyenne, and the Shoshone; however, it is the Ute people who seem to have the greatest connection to the place. White people used it as a beer garden in the 1859. 🙃
I’m really trying to be more consistent with my practice now that it’s ski season and my body feels thrashed more often than in the summer. How do you prevent injury and find a balance between restorative and more taxing activities? #yogi#yogabullshit
I found some old words I wrote from last year:
You could sit down and drink a cup of tea with me. You could ask me all of the questions that stir through your mind, you could ask me why, how, when, where, why. You could stare into my eyes and try to decipher the intricate stories that flurry beneath the surface. You could sit there and touch the scars that shimmer under the light and you could try to understand where they all came from, why they all rest there. You could sit there and tell me that you feel where I've been or where I am going. You could sit there and scream at me for how I've left behind countless people in order to go travel. You could sit there with me, and you could never understand what makes up this human of mine. You could sit there with me and never understand why I will never stop, why I will never slow, why I will never let go of this dream of mine. You could sit there, forever, and I will have been just a passing impression. You could sit there, and watch me leave.

My fellow gringa friend @emilyhopcian shared this quote with me a while back while talking about living in Argentina. & it perfectly expresses how I feel about my place in this world - somewhat torn between countries & never again fully content or still in either one. I cannot be two places at the same time. & yet, it’s such a beautiful problem to have. •
I’m heading back to the US of A right now. & no, I don’t know for how long. & no, I don’t have a plan. & yes, leaving bariloche breaks my heart. & yes, I intend to go back. But what I do know is that for now it’s time to spend time with family, to eat bagels & Taco Bell, to visit friends across yankeelandia. To bask a little bit in the undeniable opportunities and luxuries that the states provides, to think about going back to school, to continue building & experiencing this life that I want to move through with intention. I don’t feel this big/sad pressure of moving away or goodbye forever. Because that’s not what this is. Obviously I will miss people & places. But I forever will, no matter where I go. So my people down south: know that I’m thinking of you. That I’ve left a big part of my heart with you. & that I will absolutely be back for it.
The shifting of 2019 begins...

I've been testing out my new @vieactivewear sports bra and leggings and I have to say, I'm in love! I've been wearing my set cross-country skiing, while doing yoga and on hikes and they are perfect for adventuring, and layering in this cold Yukon weather.
They're super soft and stretchy, while still being tight enough that you can do physical activity in them, they don't pill, and they're made of awesome sweat-wicking, anti-microbial fabric (aka, I haven't had to wash them yet 😂)
Make sure to go check out @vieactivewear if you're in the market for some new workout gear 🙂 #gifted#vieactivewear#vieactive#BeFlawsome

This is how happy I am when I'm off exploring somewhere new. 😊
Only 3 more days until I'm jetting off on my next adventure across the world ✈️
(Also side note, if anyone wants to go somewhere warm, I would love to get back to being this tanned 😂)
